Exclamation Email, possibly junk / spam

I am suddenly getting these emails with the following credentials.
From:MAILER-DAEMON@nm7.bullet.mail.ukl.yahoo.com Subject:Failure Notice Received:7:36 PM Size:16 KB

I have a feeling that its not a genuine failure message as i have not sent any mail today. Also its saying that i have sent these messages that have failed to contacts that are not even in my contacts list.

I have a feeling its spam and junk however i am constantly getting these. they started about half 7 and are still coming through ?

Any ideas ?

If you use Yahoo, change your password. It's possible your credentials have been compromised and someone/thing is using your account to spam.
